Coroner’s finding on four-year-old leads update

Today’s media update focuses on the coroner’s finding into the 2005 death of "Rory" a four-year-old known to DHS. The findings were released on Melbourne Cup Eve. Coroner Jennifer Tregent noted that, even on a "cursory review" of the Victorian Ombudsman’s recent report on child protection in the Loddon Mallee region, many of the concerns raised in the management of Rory’s case "remain prevalent" (see pp.34–35 of report, link below).

Coverage of the Ombudsman’s report was featured in our last media update.
